Theology Curriculum / Retreats

Theology Curriculum

The Theology Department has a threefold mission:

1. to put students in contact with the real person of Jesus Christ;
2. to reinforce his teachings in their minds and hearts; and
3. to prepare them for living his universal call to holiness in the world.

These goals are achieved through a college-preparatory curriculum in the classroom and a spiritual formation program offered through the school’s liturgies and retreats.

Students will earn the four Theology credits required for graduation in the following courses:

Theology 1 – Divine Revelation and Jesus Christ
Theology 2 – Salvation and the Church
Theology 3 – The Sacraments and Morality
Theology 4 – Our Moral Life in Christ, or
Our Moral Life in Christ – Intensive Study


As part of Marian Central’s Catholic mission, students are required to attend a yearly class retreat hosted by the school.

Day retreats are offered for each grade level during the school year. In addition, Sophomore students may choose to take part in the Washington D.C. March for Life, Junior students may choose to attend a three-day long Kairos retreat and Seniors may choose to attend an overnight retreat.
